Visions From the Edge: The Future of Religion - $20  more info: Admission for Scholars' Panel

This evening at the Vortex Dome follows the Laemmle Theatre's premiere theatrical run of the documentary film, "Caesar's Messiah: The Roman Conspiracy to Invent Jesus." The documentary is based on the best-selling book (in religious studies) of the same name by Joseph Atwill, a controversial Bible scholar who made the recent archaeological discovery that the Flavian Caesars of Rome in the first century put together the Gospels as a political tool to quell the Jewish rebellion and create pacifistic followers throughout their empire. The film interviews seven Bible scholars who present convincing evidence to support Atwill’s thesis. 

The most notable Bible scholar to appear in the film is Robert EisenmanDirector of the Institute of Judaeo-Christian Origins at California State University Long Beach. Eisenman led the campaign to open public access to the Dead Sea Scrolls, and Atwill and Eisenman worked together on the dating of the Scrolls. Other scholars in the documentary include Timothy Freke presenting the Gnostic point of view, atheist Kenneth Humphreys, mythicist Acharya S / D.M. Murdock, literary analyst John Hudson, and Dr. Rod Blackhirst of La Trobe University, Australia, who discovered the Flavian origins of the Gospels independently of Joseph Atwill. The documentary points out that new perspectives on the Gospels can only come from maverick scholars working outside the consensus of established institutions.

Tonight's event will feature a panel of scholars Robert Eisenman, Joseph Atwill, and John Hudson, as well as international scholars appearing via Skype - Kenneth Humphreys from England, and Rod Blackhirst from Australia – discussing Atwill’s discovery. Film clips will be shown, and the scholars will answer questions on the deconstruction of Christianity and its impact on the future of religion.
